Verizon's 5G network to launch April 11 in two USA cities

Verizon has announced that it will turn on its mobile 5G network in Chicago and Minneapolis on April 11

The service carrier is launching its 5G network for its mobile users in Chicago and Minneapolis on April 11.

Verizon CEO Hans Vestberg said in February that the company is planning to roll out 5G network service to more than 30 US cities in 2019. The plan is still to launch Verizon 5G in 30 cities by the end of 2019.

Verizon's 5G Mobility service in Chicago and Minneapolis uses the new radio (NR) standard developed by the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP). Customers will be able to access the network with the Motorola moto z3 smartphone paired with the Motorola 5G moto mod to create a 5G-enabled phone.

Just like 4G a few years ago, initial 5G coverage will be limited to a few markets and the same goes for Verizon.

Finally, the last obstacle between you and 5G is a compatible device. To start, it will only work with Motorola's Moto Z3 phone using a 5G add-on pack.

Desperation has led to looting of shops in Caracas, the nation's capital, which triggered a shootout with the police. The Democrats' districts have some of the largest populations of Venezuelans and Colombians in the United States .

Without the 5G service, Verizon's three unlimited plans cost $75, $85, or $95 a month for a single line and differ based on throttling policies, video quality, and mobile hotspot data limits.

"5G data usage with the Moto Mod is unlimited with no data deprioritization", a Verizon spokesperson told Ars today. Alternatively, you can upgrade your smartphone to a Moto Z3 for $10 a month for 24 months, which means you'd save $240 off the regular price. For Minneapolis, you are looking at 5G in Downtown West, Downtown East, and Elliot Park.

While Verizon is leading the charge to test its 5G services, industry analysts say the higher-speed networks are unlikely to be widely available until the middle of the next decade. After the pre-order period, it'll return back to its regular $350 sticker price, which is a bit pricey if you ask us. As announced past year, the Moto Mod is essentially a detachable 5G antenna for the Moto Z3. In October, Verizon launched the first commercial 5G home broadband networks in Houston, Los Angeles, Sacramento and Indianapolis, though those were on an older 5G system that the company is planning to switch out. But Samsung has yet to announce a release date for it.

In Chicago and Minneapolis, the rollout will start on a small scale.
